Running Start at Green River College

Running Start is an exciting and nationally recognized option that allows high school juniors and seniors to enroll in college courses tuition-free. Credits earned at Green River are transferable to most four-year colleges and universities, and can satisfy high school graduation requirements. Students may attend classes at Green River full-time or part-time, depending on high school enrollment.
